The Childcare Development Fund (CCDF) Program is seeking participation of individuals interested in providing constructive input into the structural design and cultural aspects (space, materials) of the tribal childcare center, proposed to be constructed, next year, at the Mashpee Wampanoag Village on Meetinghouse Road in Mashpee.
Funds were awarded in September, by the US Department of Health and Human Services/Administration for Children and Families. A preconstruction application, containing a Feasibility Study and Schematic design, is due no later than June 30, 2019, for approval to move forward with construction. The bid for this component was awarded to RGB Architects, in February. Education staff met with John Racine in mid-March, to discuss the location, physical structure, and related aspects of the 3,500 square ft. center.
The first meeting is scheduled for April 16, from 5:00-6:00 PM in the MWT Community & Government Center, Education Conference Area. One to two additional meetings are anticipated during this stage of the application process.
